Fw: [MPD-5D] 1300/1400 blk. Brentwood Rd., NE/Woodridge Vets Liquor
- Commander Greene, et al.:I think I have noticed a bit of increased patrol activity around the troublesome area. Thank you very much. However, the particular individual in the van continues to loiter in the area pretty regularly (now sometimes in the parallel block of Franklin Street, NE, which leads me to believe that he too has noticed increased police presence). On the downside, I have recently noticed a lot of people urinating in public on the side and rear of the Laundromat. Please increase the pressure of possible. I am very concerned for the safety of my single female and elderly neighbors. The lurking man in the van has them rattled and I understand why. If any MPD members would like more specific information regarding this van (for instance, tag # to determine whether he lives in the area), please e-mail me directly and off the list. Though I am irritated at this individual, we must be careful to respect his privacy rights. After all, we want him to respect our rights to peaceful and comfortable living.Thanks,G.

It is illegal to drink in public and definitely behind the wheel of a vehicle, I will send officers there on saturdays to enforce and arrest for alcohol violations.

Does anyone in the group share my concern about the loitering around the
above-referenced liquor store and the nearby 24-hour laundromat?
Perhaps I am overreacting to regular activity (though, as reported
earlier, I have been threatened and challneged to fight for simply
walking down the block on a Saturday evening). My neighbor - an elderly
lady who lives alone - is very concerned about a man who periodically
(incliuding the last two afternoons and evenings) sits for 4-8 hours in
his van playing loud music and drinking directly adjacent to her home on
B-wood Rd. While I do not know whether it is illegal to sit in a van
next to a house where you do not live in a neighborhood where you do not
live, it sure seems scary to her. What do the police and my fellow
residents think about this? Should something be done? Is it illegal?
Should we simply accept it and shut up. Please share your opinions.
